After yesterday's walk, my longest for a couple of months, I slept well in my comfortable B&B. I woke just before 7am, and after a huge breakfast I set off walking shortly after 8am in the early light of day.

I dropped down to the south, before following field paths and a gorse banked track around Moel Eithinen to the A494 at Clwyd Gate. After a brief walk along the busy road, the ascent began again in earnest! The direct route to my final hill for the day, Moel Gyw, didn't look too pleasant given it was steep pathless bracken and heather! Instead I opted to follow the Offa's Dyke Path around to the bwlch to the south of the hill, before following a good path up to the summit of Moel Gyw (Marilyn), which was marked by a trig point and a small nearby slightly higher cairn; I visited them both.

I rang for a taxi to meet me in Llandegla when I was about 2km away and had fun trying to arrange where to meet as their system couldn't cope that I didn't know the postcode for the village! Eventually we settled on the post office as it was somewhere on my map and they thought that they should be able to find it!
